Have finally updated the blog software to WordPress 2.7. Not as painful as I was anticipating.
I have a theory if you anticipate the worst, things typically work first go, but you waste lots of time and energy being paranoid; of course that one time you’re not paranoid or too complacent about installing an upgrade happens to be that one time when the shit hits the fan. The same is true with computer hardware; when you install a new interface card or memory and carefully close up the box, before testing the new hardware, you always end up having to reopen the box because: the card / memory wasn’t seated properly; you unseated a cable by accident that just happened to get caught on your sleeve cuff button; forget to reconnect a cable you disconnected so you get your hands inside, etc. Sometimes I think Murphy was the court jester to God.
